I bought 4 silkies chickens that were meant to be girls that were 2 weeks old, they are now nearly 4 months and two of them are starting to look a lot like boys
I was wondering if anyone could help
These photos down below are of the two chickens that I suspect are roos

I think they are pullets. Mine are 9 weeks and have very large waddles and combs already.

It's possible since silkies are hard to sex.
Although I agree none looked like boys at that age.
This is what my golden silkie looks like now
He/she sounds like they're trying to crow but then again I can't remember what a female sounds like so it's hard for me to tell

Still looks like a girl, but.
If it is indeed crowing, then I'd vote cockerel because it's too rare for girls to crow.
OK I'll go with you guys, I haven't had a Cockerell in years so I was confused when I though I heard crowing but she must just be clucking
Thanks for your help
